France 'must learn to live with terrorism'
More below the break.
America must reevaluate its relationship with NATO if this is France's position. There is no living with terrorism. If the serious players in the EU/NATO are for accommodation, there is no reason for America to continue supporting the treaty.
Back to the basic point, it is quite difficult to watch the EU countries, one after the other simply lay down, to die. WWI broke the spirit of the Europeans, WWII hammered that home. Since then, the Europeans have retreated behind the protection of the US, as if they are children living in their parents basement. Now that they are faced with a threat which comes from their own foolish actions, and faced with the consequences, they are incapable of accepting the responsibility, and acting as the adult.
We need to pair with more responsible parties in our global security endeavors.
